Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

For 2019, the X5 gets a redesign that takes it to the next level. Check out our video on it here.

by Joe Bruzek -

The 2014-18 BMW X5 was a nice SUV — nice in the way a love interest tells you you're nice before dumping you. It wasn't offensive, but it didn't go the extra mile to stand out among other luxury SUVs. And after the Swedes reset the mid-size luxury SUV benchmark with the 2016 Volvo XC90 — Cars.com's Best of 2016 winner — "nice" simply doesn't cut it anymore. For 2019, the BMW X5 is redesigned from the ground up, replacing a drab cabin with bold styling and adding more tech to the user experience as well as under the hood.

At its core, the X5 gets top marks for how it drives, though perhaps not in the way BMW has traditionally executed the "Ultimate Driving Machine." When it goes on sale Nov. 10, the X5 will come in an xDrive40i trim level with a more powerful turbocharged six-cylinder (335 horsepower, up from 300 hp in 2018), while the twin-turbocharged eight-cylinder xDrive50i has a reworked 456-hp engine; both have standard all-wheel drive. I sampled the xDrive40i at a BMW press preview in the Atlanta area (per Cars.com's ethics policy, we pay for our airfare and lodging at such automaker-sponsored events).

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
